Joia Monet – Leopard Capes | Statement Necklaces | Patterned Wedges

Mix patterns and prints to create a unique look!


Happy New Year! One of my resolutions for the year regarding personal style and fashion, is to be more comfortable with mixing prints, so putting this look together to bring in the new year was a must! I bought this longline leapord print cape from Forever 21 during their Black Friday sale. The original price was over $40 – the final amount was under $20.

I chose to pair it with this bright, royal blue blouse and loose-fitting denim jeans. Another favorite are this multi-colored shoes. Can you believe I snagged these from the Goodwill?! They were $7.99, but I left the store only paying $4. Score!!

Normally, I’d rock simple accessories or none at all, but this statement necklace given to me for Christmas by my older sister (she knows me so well) added the perfect touch! My beautiful bracelets were hand-crafted by Aunt as another great Christmas gift!

Don’t be afraid to combine bold and bright patterns. You never know what fab look you can create! Until next time, shop smart, get creative, and always stay true to you!

Harriet Tubman is one of America’s most beloved historical figures but has sadly been largely relegated to just a few facts during Black History Month. This incredible ex-slave, spy, cook, nurse, public speaker and rescuer deserves a story worthy of her stature.

“Minty” – tentatively titled after Tubman’s nickname – is a “reimagining” of Harriet Tubman as an action hero. It is a period piece with a modern flare.
